Summer

Happy Fourth of July friends! With 2020 more than halfway over, I could go deep here, and share all the insights, challenges, and opportunities I’ve had over the past 7 months, but I’ll save all that for another day, and just say that we are taking the day tommorow to celebrate the birth of our…

If you’ve spent more than 5 seconds on my blog, you’ll have noticed that I have a penchant for sewing activewear. Some might even call it an obsession, and I’m frequently asked, with some amazement, how many pairs of leggings/sports bras/tanks I actually own. I haven’t counted, but I’d guess its over 20 of each-…

I have a bad habit of signing up for too many things whenever we come back from a trip. Every time, I swear I won’t do it, and without fail, here I am again, with the third blog post in as many days, because I just couldn’t resist committing to just one more project (can…
